Common Dreams, or should that be Nightmares

Common Dreams is one of those leftie sites which has for some odd reason become fashionable with NZ liberals, no degree of skepticism aimed in that direction.

This sort of thing from Michael Moore is pretty much indicative of that sites politics.

Speaking of Kosovo Moore propounds: "We know Clinton is lying to us. We know there is no "Holocaust" taking place."

Doesn't this all sound a bit too familiar, the "lying" stuff? Go through and replace "Clinton" with "Bush" in the article and this would pass for present day liberal commentary. (Typical that Moore should deny the atrocities being committed - dogma over-ruling reality).

I find it odd this new found love in NZ for the Democrats. When Clinton was helping protect Serbia and Kosovo all I can remember is going to Grey Lynn parties and hearing about US imperialism and what Chomsky had to say. And the sad thing is the same people are now saying the same things but now about Bush.

Moore again:

"Now, it is time for all of us to stop Clinton and his disgusting, hypocritical fellow democrats who support him in this war. It is amazing to watch all these "liberal" congress members line up behind the President. In a way, I'm glad it's happening, if only to show the American people there is little difference between the Democrats and the usually war-loving Republicans. Aren't you getting a kick watching the Pat Buchanans and the Henry Hydes sounding like pacifists! These politicians can change stripes at the drop of a hat (or bomb) because, ultimately, they are the same animal, participants in a one-party system that tries to fool the people by going by two names ("Democrat" and "Republican")."
